Hay, the downward dog with the question mark besides it? I see my own dogs do down dog and up dog stretches just about everytime they get up from lying down.

Hi Poppy,

I've been good.

We're entering a kind of weird moment again - it's nearly the first anniversary of my father's death. It's been a year of firsts without him, and there was a first nearly every 6 weeks.

Well, looking back I think we didn't do too badly. My mother was the most affected, so I had to keep an eye on her but she's been getting better about doing things for herself. Five months after my father passed away she started travelling for travelling's sake, and that was really good for her.

There were times I had to take a step back and be on my own, and it's been a sluggish year but all in all we did pretty good. My nephew had school exams in April/May, so that also helped us focus on something bigger than ourselves.
